Curriculum Design

2014-2017

We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum which excites, engages and challenges our children and is designed to meet the needs and aspirations of our school, our children and our families. It builds upon the 2014 National Curriculum through a set of planned experiences which help to provide a sense of relevance and purpose for all children.

We have identified a set of key elements and experiences which enhance and enrich our learning provision. These are as follows:

  • An awareness of living in a diverse, multi cultural society.
  • Opportunities for learning outside the classroom using school grounds, the local area and well- planned educational visits.
  • Developing an appreciation of the richness of different languages spoken around the world.
  • Developing a language rich environment which promotes a love of reading and the importance of spoken and written communication.
  • Embedding opportunities across the curriculum for the spiritual, social, emotional, moral and cultural development of all children.
  • Ensuring that children have access to a wide range of artistic and cultural experiences, including theatre, dance and music.
  • Developing children’s confidence and skills in PE, sports and play.

Mathematics and English, including letters and sounds, are taught daily with opportunities provided for children to apply these skills in other subjects as part of their cross -curricular thematic learning.
